Saints sign ex Cowboys WR Dez Bryant

New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis is more or less legendary in his ability to navigate the salary cap, and he's done it again in signing former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant.

He'll get the opportunity to play against his former team later this month, as the Saints are scheduled to visit the Cowboys in Week 13.

Dez Bryant isn't the same player he once was-the last time we saw him, he was a step slow and still struggling with drops-but that's not a problem right now.

Here's how the rest of Twitter responded to the signing. "I think he's going to be a good veteran for that team".

For Bryant, the move means joining an elite quarterback in Drew Brees on a team with championship aspirations. "I look forward to working with him".

He will serve our Country well ... "It's very sad", Trump said during a scathing interview with Hill.TV in September. Sessions said that he did not think he should lead the investigation since he had been a Trump campaign surrogate.

Bryant ended his eight-year career with Dallas as the franchise's all-time leader in receiving touchdowns with 73.

After the three-time Pro Bowler's production dipped last season - 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns - Bryant was released by the Cowboys with two years remaining on a five-year, $70m contract. Bryant also took a shot at the team in July where he ripped multiple people, including coach Jason Garrett, for running a "garbage ass" offense. "Definitely been a guy who's been on our radar for a while". Bryant might not be the player he was in 2014, the last time he topped 1,000 yards, but he is an upgrade over Tre'Quan Smith, the Saints' current starting receiver opposite Michael Thomas.

For an idea on the lack of wide receiver production outside of Thomas, Ted Ginn Jr., who is on injured reserve with a knee injury, hasn't played since Week 4, yet his 22 targets still rank as the second-most among the wideouts behind Thomas.

"It's big for him, man", Crawford said, via PFT. "I know he'll help their team".
